About Us

Founded in 1968 by Mr Peter Hunt, Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities. We are dedicated to improving the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.

Bransby Horses is still thriving over five decades later thanks to amazing public support and the wonderful people who have remembered us in their Will. We rely solely on support from the general public to help us continue our mission through our key charity principles: rescue, rehabilitate, rehome and educate.

We now have two sites: Bransby which is home to over 300 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, and our Barlings site which homes over 40 horses and ponies.

We also have around 500 horses and ponies in foster homes. Our Bransby Family Fosterers are an essential part in helping us continue our welfare work through our Perfect Partner rehoming scheme, enabling us to take on more equines in need.
